This week, LSU Health Sciences Center introduced an emergency reporting service that will allow faculty, staff, and students to send text messages to University Police in order to facilitate the reporting of crime, to help prevent crime, and to allow police faster and more accurate information.
Subscription and registration with campus emergency alerts is not necessary. Users can simply send a message to 50911 with a text beginning “LSUHSC” in order to notify University Police of emergencies, crimes, and suspicious activities or persons in the area. Normal text message rates assigned by cell phone providers will apply.
Users may also contact University Police with non-emergency information at 568-8270 or via online message at http://www.is.lsuhsc.edu/police/response.htm.
The graphic below provides more detailed information about this service from http://www.lsuhsc.edu/alerts/utip.aspx.
TO SEND A TIP
TEXT 50911 and begin your message with LSUHSC
University Police will not be notified If your text does not begin with LSUHSC
